Interview with Leah Dowdy

  1. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  2. A: I love that I get to make people feel understood and less alone.

  3. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  4. A: Florence Welch because she is one of a kind and a musical Goddess.

  5. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  6. A: I first began writing music as an angsty pre-teen as a form of personal therapy. It wasn't until I moved to New York City after college that my business minded roommate asked me why I was hoarding a binder full of songs that I could be monetizing. Since then I have penned lyrics for a number of local musicians and even collaborated on a few overseas projects. I hope to keep elevating my craft and someday hear the lyrics of my songs being sung back to me by 20,000 people at Madison Square Garden. Dream big xx

  7. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  8. A: Even if you think what you've just created is f**king brilliant, step away from it for at least 24 hours. Let it settle and revisit your work with a cleansed and more critical palate.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: Pop / Ballads / Dance / Country

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Songwriting.

  13. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  14. A: Relatable, honest and thoughtfully worded lyrics.

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: Florence + The Machine, Maggie Rogers, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Emily King, Dermot Kennedy, Ryn Weaver, Sara Bareilles, Chance The Rapper, Taylor Swift

    In light of current events, I posted a song inspired by the #BlackLivesMatter movement on Instagram, and received an overwhelmingly emotional and positive response. In the spirit of turning pain into positive change, I have uploaded the song “Human” onto all music platforms and the proceeds will be donated to Color Of Change. Listen HERE on Spotify.
